Metals A Summer Session 4

Metals Summer Session 4
July 3–15
Aaron Decker
Enameling in the Round

In this workshop students will explore techniques for enameling on 3D surfaces. We’ll experiment, take risks, and problem-solve during a thorough investigation into enamel as a material for 3D forms. We’ll also delve into enameling techniques such as wet packing, enamel painting, and plique-à-jour. We’ll translate drawing, painting, or sketches into opportunities to explore pattern, shape, and the surface qualities of enamel. Students should be able to complete 10-15 tiles/pieces, but the core of this workshop will be creative problem-solving and getting to know the material. All levels. Upper metals studio.
